You don’t have to be an audiophile to get excited for the new and improved AI-enabled audio experiences coming your way.

We’re talking next-gen voice control (that can even function without an internet connection) and premium audio that is bold like never before. Dated multi-speaker surround sound is out, gigantic speaker systems are out, because more immersive audio will soon be available in a wide range of devices across form factors and tiers  — from the smart assistants to hi-fidelity soundbars.

The future of audio is as much about how your devices listen to you (and your other smart home devices) as it is about how you listen to them. And that’s why the new Qualcomm QCS400 SoCs were specifically engineered for the IoT world. In addition to delivering premium sound, they’re enabling some of the most intelligent audio experiences to date.

In this episode, we chat with Stephanie Rogers from our Voice and Music team and Gary Brotman from our AI team to learn more about these new SoCs and the future of audio.
